Why I joined AIMMS

Supply Chain Brief Best ArticleFor three decades now I have been helping my clients with their Supply Chain questions….I have seen a lot of change along my journey. Some of my early projects included initiatives like helping large retailers transform from a pure paper-based operation inside their 4 walls to a first-generation Warehouse Management System (WMS). I also helped my clients with Sales & Operations Planning and with Distribution Network Design and Transportation Optimization Projects, to name just a few. In the past, all of these projects shared a few common traits including long, tedious and expensive implementations involving small armies of consultants. It would take a long time and a lot of money before businesses could see improvement. That is not the case any longer. Today, I am happy to say that I am still helping clients make better decisions. The big difference is AIMMS. Today, with our Agile approach and extremely cost-effective cloud native technology, my clients are using our software in a matter of days to improve their business.

I joined AIMMS because I was introduced to a beautiful business culture where every single associate acts in a collaborative atmosphere as one united team with one goal in mind: to serve our clients and provide real Prescriptive Analytics for everyone. We are democratizing analytics, so businesses don’t need to have data scientists or consultants to be able to gain valuable insights from their data quickly. AIMMS provides flexibility of supply chain scope, meaning that a business can start to optimize one area in their supply chain and then grow and expand with us from there. Ease of configuration and rapid deployment mean that most businesses will be able to configure and start using our solution even before our first invoice is due. Today, most organizations spend 85% of their time collecting data, 10% visualizing, and 5% analyzing. Let us help you evolve and transform. As an overburdened supply chain professional, you don’t want to spend too much time collecting data. You want to focus on the insights it brings. The AIMMS solution is low cost, low risk and high business impact – which makes working with us an easy business decision.
